Do you know what Lughnasadh is? Do you even know how to pronounce it? As modern humans we are much removed from the rhythms of the Earth and out of tune with the Wheel of the Year ancient humans devised to keep time with the seasons. Modern adherents of Earth-Centered spiritual paths seek to bring their lives back as much as possible to their ‘roots’ and align themselves with the natural world around them. Learn the timeless insight and universal wisdom the Pagan holiday of Lughnasadh–Celebration of First Harvest–can teach to humans living in the modern world.
